Ex-worker alleges Clearwater company violated workers compensation law
A Hernando County man is suing a Clearwater business, alleging violation of the Workers' Compensation Retaliation Statute.
Adam Justine Hyde filed a complaint June 4 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Lightning Master Corporation, alleging wrongful termination.
According to the complaint, between Sept. 11-Oct. 16, 2015, Hyde was injured on the job while being employed by Lightning Master. The suit says Hyde thereafter sought workers' compensation benefits.
However, Hyde said, he was terminated from his employment, shortly after his valid claim or attempt to to claim workers' compensation benefits. As a result, Hyde says, he has suffered damages, lost wages, emotional and mental anguish, inconvenience and humiliation.
